Hildegard 2 – Listening with the Heart
Hildegard is a great companion - you might have noticed this already as you journeyed with her this past week.
We reflected on penance and conversion last week. Penance, Hildegard reminds us, begins in the heart and so does conversion.
We keep pondering on the heart and Benedict's words that we need to listen with the ear of our heart. Is this what Benedictine Spirituality helps us to realize for our own lives? Realizing that listening is a matter of the heart? What would be different this Lent if we practiced to listen with the heart?
